Vatican Council II – New Subject Guide Added to Website

2012 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the beginning of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). Pope John XXIII’s intent in calling for the gathering of the world’s bishops was “to let some fresh air into the church” and to promote an “aggiornamento” or updating of the church to be a more effective witness in the modern world. To commemorate and recall this milestone in the church a new subject guide has been added to the library’s website. See:
